FOREWORD

The Rt Hon BARONESS HAYMAN

The Rt Hon BARONESS HAYMAN

I am very pleased to have been asked to contribute the foreword to such an invaluable publication as the Parliamentary Diary.

The past year has been an extremely turbulent time for Parliament and parliamentarians. As we look forward, it is vital that efforts continue to restore trust in Parliament and strengthen its position at the heart of our national life.

The Parliamentary Diary provides an essential source of information about Parliament and, more than ever, it is important that Parliament communicates clearly with the public so that debates about Parliament are rooted in knowledge of its role and functions. Explaining Parliament’s work and highlighting its relevance to people’s lives has never been more important.

I look forward, with all who use the diary, to a busy and productive 2010.
